Officials facing suspension
Municipal announcement

No heads at Matjhabeng have yet received the chop

It was wrongly stated in today's Vista that these managers have already received the chop, no-one has been kicked out. Vista understands that at least seven top managers are facing suspension, with more to follow, but no announcements have yet been made.

Speaking in a management meeting held at the TS Du Plessis Hall in Welkom on Friday (22/11) the municipal manager, Thabiso Tsoaeli, did not mince his words.

“The bad discipline in our work place is at its highest and this is unacceptable. Officials are misbehaving and doing as they please, with disregard for the code of conduct. I can promise you in no uncertain terms that the rotten potatoes will leave Matjhabeng soon.”

Tsoaeli said that there are those plotting against him.

“The chief question is where do they get the mandate to do so? Because of this plot, the officials’ focus has been diverted from their responsibilities and their core function, which is to improve service delivery.

“We have a mandate to render basic services to our communities and as the head of administration I expect officials to fulfil this. Those whose focus is in other things other than rendering basic services to the community must provide their resignations on Monday.”

He also reassured the officials present that he is alive and well, despite recent rumours that he was dying.

“I am strong and it’s only God who is in charge and no-one else has power over my life,” he said.

Tsoaeli told the officials that he was committed to working with them to render the best services for the citizens of Matjhabeng.

“Matjhabeng has potential to be the best in the country only if we move as a collective,” he said.

Tsoaeli told them that soon the municipality would receive a R1 billion neighbourhood development grant and R250 million to fix critical infrastructure in the townships.

“These cash injections will take us very far, as our communities are struggling because of ageing infrastructure, theft and vandalism of our property, including sabotage. We hope as we intensify service delivery with these grants, communities will take care of their infrastructure and jealously guard it from theft and vandalism.”
